Notes on the Geography of Brazil: Recife Antigo and Central: Photo 10
The Maurice of Nassau Bridge separates Antonio Vaz island from the still smaller island behind the camera. Now called Recife Antigo, old Dutch maps simply call this tiny island Reciffo. The two were connected by a wooden bridge as early as 1643. The bridges were renovated repeatedly and finally replaced with an iron bridge that promptly rusted. This concrete bridge was built in 1917 and is one of four between the two islands.
